Author Bio

I am a Ukrainian student who feels grateful to study in the United Kingdom and to acquire knowledge about International Relations. My childhood dream has been to help my country to build strong foundation in the light of its recently acquired independence. I believe in my dreams and their pursuit, as long as I work hard and put my soul in whatever I do. This is why I have been doing my best to gain experience in different fields and to develop skills in interpersonal communication. I love challenges and take them up with pleasure, as I know they will significantly strengthen myself and will allow to push my limits further. I also enjoy travelling the world and learning languages, as both enable me to study harder and to take actions to make my dream come true.

This can also be therefore explained by the intertwined rationale of self-development and travel, all linked in one. This wonderful organisation and its people brought me to sessions in Turkey, Finland, France, Switzerland and this time – Georgia. In this post, I will tell you about my experience in Georgia, given a…
